“Music education opens doors that help children pass from school into the world around them – a world of work, culture, intellectual activity, and human involvement. The future of our nation depends on providing our children with a complete education that includes music.” – Gerald Ford
Music Education in the Schools
Jessica currently teaches general and instrument music in grades K-5th through the Pasadena Unified School District at San Rafael Elementary and Madison Elementary school. She also used to teach harp ensemble at Walnut High School. If you are interested in having music added to your school or program, please contact Jessica.
The harp is a success-based instrument that is a symbol of all the things you can do. Since the harp sounds beautiful upon plucking one string, it makes it easy and appealing for beginners.
Lessons are available for both pedal and lever harps.
Getting a Harp
It is crucial that each student have a harp to practice on. The harp is a big investment, therefore Jessica can help you select the harp that best fits your needs.
